Exfoliating your skin on a routine basis helps to eliminate dead skin cells that accumulate on the surface. These dead cells accumulate more as we age, due to slower skin regeneration.

A good exfoliation regimen depends on skin type and product. For drier more sensitive skin, one to two times a week is sufficient. For more oily and less sensitive skin, two to three times a week works well.

Using a less abrasive product allows for more exfoliation days without irritating the skin. Always follow by applying a good moisturizer; except before a spray tan because the color will not hold.

Removing the dead skin cells helps to leave the skin hydrated, letting moisture into the pores. It will leave the skin glowing, smooth and youthful.

When spray tanning, an exfoliation before your treatment is ideal; leaving the color more natural, less blotchy from skin cell buildup and extends the color of your tan.

The exfoliating product you choose, does make a difference in your overall goal for your body. The most popular bases for a scrub are salt, sugar, or a blend of both.

Sugar scrubs are softer, yet stickier than salt. Sugar based scrubs dissolve easier and are better for sensitive skin.

Salt based scrubs are better for thicker, more callused, less sensitive skin because it is more abrasive. Salt scrubs have an extra benefit of remineralizing and pulling toxins from the skin. Salt scrubs absorb more oil, making it ideal in reducing acne prone areas. Avoid a salt based scrub on broken or already irritated skin.
